One of the Rainbow Serpents of the Dreamtime animals from the mythology of the Australian Natives. Woinunggur is a cosmic multi-coloured python that lives in a deep underwater cave. It created the landscape as it rose from the depths of its habitat. He is known to sleep in the mud during the dry season and flies to the sky as a rainbow sending down rain to help life re-grow during the wet season. He has a fascination for anything that is iridescent. Woinunggur protects its people but it does punish those that break the law. Woinunggur helps its people by sending down cooling rains during times of intense heat.
